In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October, Caitlin Cervenka of LAF's Children and Families Practice Group joins Nubia in conversation for this episode. They discuss the strategies Caitlin and her colleagues employ to advocate for survivors of violence in child custody and divorce proceedings, how low-income survivors experience violence differently than others, and, as always why legal aid matters to them.
